More than Meets the Eye
A common technique used to add depth to a character or as a plot twist or subversion is to create a character with two opposing sides. This typically consists of:

  • An "outer" character - who they appear to be to most other characters, and who they usually initially appear to the audience.
  • An "inner" character - who the character is revealed to be behind closed doors.

Can be made to surprise the audience with a twist, to make An Aesop, as what was initially a subversion of a Deadhorse Trope, in an effort of Character Development, or simply for the aestheticism of contrast.

Subindex of Infauxmation Desk. Index to Hidden Depths.
